One of the last conversations Jesus had with 11 of his disciples was his commission for them to make more disciples (Jesus followers) of all the nations on earth. Jesus told them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:18-20). We take Jesus’ commission very seriously and therefore take the ministry of missions seriously.
We are committed both to supporting short term missionaries and to sending our own members on short term mission trips. We will remain dedicated to making disciples, to baptizing them, and to teaching them to obey all that Jesus commanded.
